MR ALAN WOODS, MR RICHARD JONES, MS SUE HUNTER AND MS MICHELLE CREED

8 JULY 2008

  Q817 Chairman: Good morning. Bora da. For the record, could you introduce yourselves, please.

Mr Woods: I am Alan Woods, the Chief Executive of Skills for Justice in the Sector Skills Council for the Justice Sector.

  Mr Jones: I am Richard Jones, Wales Country Manager, with Skills for Justice.

  Ms Hunter: Sue Hunter. I am the Development and Quality Assurance Manager for Skills for Justice.

  Ms Creed: Bora da. I am Michelle Creed the Director for Wales, Lifelong Learning UK.

  Q818  Chairman: Thank you very much. The acoustics are not brilliant in this room, so do not be afraid to project your voices. Is there a Sector Skills Council for that? Could I begin by asking you a very simple question: are there separate Sector Skills Councils' agreements for each of the four nations for every sector?

  Mr Woods: Yes, I believe that to be the case.

  Q819  Chairman: Could you tell us how that works out in a practical sense, given that labour markets and sectors do not always match national boundaries?

  Mr Jones: Did you mean the Sector Skills Agreements that we have?
